Welcome

AF develops and runs projects for finding, collecting, studying and creating images of the futures.
Our interdisciplinary projects combine creative, experimental, artistic and participatory approaches with futures research.

AF tackles the challenges of visual documentation, illustration and storytelling about futures.
The future is not an objective physical reality, available to visit for shooting footage. Our solution is to seek out subjective imagination in participatory projects. The tools for understanding what is at stake and what is possible come from the field of futures studies, communications theories, visual arts theory and practice.

AF started as an experimental set-up and the small unit keeps adapting and evolving as technological, cultural, research and media landscapes themselves continue to change.

 

About AF...

AF’s interdisciplinairy and cross-media practice has been in the making for over a decade.

Agence Future grew from an independent project by Bram Goots (photographer) and Maya van Leemput (futurist) that started in 01999. During the first years of the millennium, the two travelled in 25 countries, spread over five continents to conduct interviews with more than 300 people who shared their ideas, images and feelings about personal, local and global futures. It is now more than ten years ago the team was on the road with recumbent bicycles, carrying the required technology for recording and distributing their work, interviewing in ten European countries.
